Kitsap County Administration Building: Port Orchard, WA

Elevating Performance
Nic Lehoux

The terraced building steps down with the site's steep grade and incorporates earth sheltering, natural ventilation and daylighting. The thermal mass of the concrete structure minimizes temperature fluctuation. The building team used the Seattle area climate to its advantage, incorporating a rainwater storage and irrigation system that holds more than 110,000 gallons.
